Why ‘Radical Body Love’ Is Thriving on Instagram
Embraced by celebrities like Tess Holliday and Lena Dunham, the body-positive movement is carving out a digital space where everyday people find affirmation for their appearance. This movement has provided a much needed balance to all of the super-skinny Instagram models who have traditionally dominated the platform. Tess Holliday even started her own hashtag #effyourbeautystandards which has almost 2.3 million uses on Instagram.

While this chart was created last year, it was rediscovered over the weekend and sparked outrage across Twitter. You can check out the full chart and some amazing reactions on the Today show website.
